Dear Diary #1

Happy Monday everyone! Can you senses the sarcasm there?? My last two posts have been pretty heavy going so I've been really keen to think of  a way I can incorporate some more lighthearted, lifestyle posts on here without speaking about things that are completely irrelevant. So here we have it, I have decided to do weekly 'Dear Diary' posts where I fill you in on the events of the previous week; whether this is days out with friends, my general thoughts and feelings, or our latest hospital appointments. Take it away week 1...

This week got off to a pretty average start, the usual 9-5 working week, but on Thursday I had a bit of a surprise when my first proper period in 6 months decided to show its face. Due to the irregularity of my periods (I will go in to more detail about this at a later date) and the back to back losses I have experienced, I haven't actually had a proper period since March so it was quite a shock for it to be back, and I won't lie, it was pretty gutting. Even though I'd been adamant I wanted to get the recurrent miscarriage tests out of the way before we really tried to get pregnant again, you always cling on to the hope that this will be your month, that this time things will be different. But this hasn't been our month, and realistically that's probably for the best. I can't bear the thought of going through all of this again, only for it to turn out there's something we could be doing to prevent us losing another baby. So I have taken the day off work this Monday coming and I am having all manner of tests at the hospital so we can hopefully get to the bottom of what is going on - expect more on this very soon!

Friday came around and I was on a half day from work so the weekend started early which was a very welcome treat! We had an exciting afternoon planned going to Friends Fest at Harewood House in Leeds with two of our favourite people, Lauren from the fabulous blog Mother Trooper and her lovely husband Mike. They are massive Friends fans so Andrew had the genius idea of getting them tickets for their wedding present. The festival was much smaller than we were expecting, but we had such a fun afternoon drinking cocktails, visiting the famous sets, and having a good old catch up. It's amazing how being around friends can lift your spirits so much, I've been making a real effort to make plans lately, I feel like it really helps me to switch off a bit and just carry on with life.

Oh hey squinty eye!

Saturday was another great day spent with beautiful friends - I went for lunch at Almost Famous in Leeds City Centre (The Brittany Murphy burger, OH MY GOD) which swiftly escalated in to a few too many cocktails (Yes, more cocktails!), followed by a very relaxing and undeserved afternoon nap! And then my good pal Sarah had us over for dinner at her new house where lots of wine, good food and laughter, topped off one of the nicest and most carefree days I've had in a really long while.

I finished the weekend off with a lazy Sunday at my mums, spent makeup free in my PJs, watching trashy TV and sorting through a box of my old papers, cards and diaries. Needless to say there were A LOT of cringe-worthy things in there that I would definitely rather forget, but I also found some really cute bits from when me and Andrew first got together back in school. They were a lovely little reminder of how far we have come and how much we have been through together, and made me feel all warm and fuzzy, the perfect way to finish off a perfect weekend!

Our first anniversary - July 28th 2007

So that was my first 'Dear Diary' post, I hope you enjoyed something a little less doom and gloom. Keeping busy and surrounding myself with the most amazing, genuine people is really making it much easier to cope with everything that life has thrown at us, I feel like I'm seeing the light at the end of a very long tunnel and I am excited to keep making special memories with my favourite people.
